If you’re reading this, you’re looking for a way out of the mundane daily grind or flat out failure you are experiencing in your life. It’s okay to admit it. There’s no shame in wanting to find a solution. In fact, it’s a shame to hide the problem and pretend that everything is okay? Not to admit it or realize it blocks your key to success.
Now we’re on the same page, I need you to pay attention to the chair you are sitting on as you read this article. It seems sturdy. Obviously, it is capable of holding your weight. It’s doing its job just fine but did you know right before you sat down to read this article, you had to make a quick snap decision.
In fact, that decision went by so quickly that you probably were not even aware of it. Still, you made the decision to sit in it. You might be wondering why did I mention this? What am I talking about? I’m talking about your instant assessment of the fitness of the chair. That’s a big deal because if you sat on the chair without thinking and without even considering whether it’s sturdy enough to hold your weight or whether it’s positioned right, you probably would have fallen flat on your rear.
You might have even hurt yourself. My point is your belief is the reason you quickly went through the emotion of sitting before you can read this article. You believed the chair would hold your weight. You believed it’s in good enough shape to hold you stable and prevent harm from occurring to you.
Belief is Crucial
I’ve walked you through this exercise above to bring home the point that belief is crucial to your daily existence. You do it all the time. You operate daily out of belief. You live in belief. Belief is the glue that ties your life together. It helps form your decisions that make your life possible.
If you can believe that chair can hold you up why do you continue to believe in things that hold you down? If you’re struggling in any shape or form it’s because you believe in the wrong things. Things that stop you from realizing your key to success. I know it hurts; it even stinks.
We’re the Authors of Our Life
Nobody wants to hear this because it leads to the ultimate conclusion we all need to wake up. But we are the authors of our life. We make that call. We make that decision and nothing stings more than coming face to face with the reality when you make bad choices.
If you’re struggling in your relationships, at your job, with your health, how much you weigh and your appearance, it’s because you made the wrong call. Nobody likes to be wrong. But the good news is that you don’t have to rely on your feelings. You are not your feelings.
You don’t have to remain trapped or at least you feel trapped. Instead, you can tap into the power of belief so you can make better decisions. And making better decisions leads you to your key to success. Do you understand that the world doesn’t care about your feelings? It really doesn’t give a hoot about what your emotional state is.
What Others Pay Attention to
Do you know what others pay attention to? It is your actions. Get your belief act in order and you will make better decisions. This means learning how to take better actions which puts your life in a better position.
Belief impacts your expectations and assumptions. Start there. What do you assume to be true about you? It is your life, your place in the world, and your capabilities. What do you expect out of life? This is a belief too.

Seriously, belief affects how you roll with the punches; it affects your personal coping mechanisms. Once you understand how belief works and understand that belief is a choice. Then you can choose better beliefs that will produce better results. Belief is your key to success, it’s just that simple.
